Field Notes Book Group

Saturday, June 15, 2024 - 11:00am to 12:30pm

Join the Field Notes Book Group for an interesting discussion of our June selection, Yellowface, by R. F. Kuang.  Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk.

June Hayward didn't intend to deceive anyone when she took the manuscript of her recently deceased friend and passed it off as her own, or when she allowed people to jump to wrong conclusions about her Asian American bona fides. And when the book becomes a bestseller, she feels justified. What could possibly go wrong?  This satire of cultural appropriation and the whole publishing industry brings up questions of racism, diversity, and the alienation of social media in a clever, funny way.

The discussion should be lots of fun.  Refreshments will be provided.
